CHARACTER CREATION - Rules
| CHARACTER CREATION|
BACKGROUNDS AND MOTIVATIONS
What backgrounds can be used?
Any Background and Motivation may be used from any official core rule book or official source. Players may come up with other ideas to suit the style of your character concept.
What races can I play?
All official species are available to players.
But I don’t like those. Can I play <insert>?
Further species contained in the The Unofficial Species Menagerie may also be used, however species listed in official Fantasy Flight Games Core Rule Books and supplementary material will always take precedence. In the case where a species’ statistics are used from an Unofficial Source, and during the campaign are canonized from an Official Source, the player has the option of choosing which version they wish to use.
CAREER AND SPECALISATIONS
Which careers can I choose from?
All official careers are available from all official source material from Fantasy Flight Games only. Characters may not choose a specialisation which has the same name as one that the character already possesses.
FORCE SENSITIVE CHARACTERS
In the case of players who wish their characters be Force Sensitive, this option MUST be chosen at character creation. Characters may not become Force Sensitive after character creation, nor during initial character creation stage with additional experience points provided after character creation (see below). Characters must therefore choose one of the Force Sensitive careers from Force and Destiny or one of the Universal Specialisations from Age of Rebellion (Force Sensitive Emergent) and Edge of the Empire (Force Sensitive Exile) during character creation. After initial character creation, purchase of careers or specialisations which provide a Force Rating will not be possible.
What will be used?
Characters in this campaign will use Duty and Obligation, with Duty forming the main mechanic during character creation.
What about characters with Force Rating?
Characters that have a Force Rating must use all three mechanics of Duty, Obligation, and Morality.
Can I get the benefit from both Morality and Duty?
Characters may only select experience/monetary benefits at the time of character creation via the Obligation mechanic.
Age of Rebellion allows for a wide range of character options allowing for generating good character concepts during character generation. Characters begin play as a starting character, and shall have at least 1 rank in Piloting (Space). This is normally best achieved by having a character that has Piloting (Space) as a Career and/or Specialisation skill and includes:
- Pilot (Core Rule Book)
- Squadron Leader (Core Rule Book)
- Mechanic (Core Rule Book)
- Hotshot (Stay on Target)
After character creation, the player may spend 150XP to advance their character.
GEAR AND EQUIPMENT
What gear can I get?
All official equipment is available to be purchased. Items not contained in the official rule books and supplements will not be available.
How many credits can I get to spend?
Characters will start with 3,000 credits instead of the standard 500 credits in order to purchase equipment. Additional funds may be possible through the Obligation mechanic. during character creation. A character is also provided with a basic Astromech droid and an X-Wing fighter.
Can I purchase restricted items?
No. Items cannot be purchased which have an “R” rating.
Can I have a lightsaber?
The standard lightsaber contained in the Age of Rebellion Core Rulebook is a very powerful weapon and is valued at 10,000 credits. The lightsaber will only be available to those who have a Force Rating, however given the costs involved, it is more likely that a player will have the training saber only.
I’m a Mechanic. Can I have ready made modifications from my abilities?
No. Items which are to be crafted of modified are to be done during a game session when dice can be rolled.
HOME BASES, HOLOCRONS AND STARSHIPS
The heroes will have access to a single starfighter of their choosing. The ship must be from an official source. Jedi Holocrons will not available at the time of initial character creation for this campaign, but may become available at a later stage through game play.
